Playful City Designation 10 Years in a Row!

Island Crest Park Renovation Project
WE REACHED OUR GOAL.  THANK YOU!!!!
The Island Crest Park Sportsfield Improvements project is underway and will be completed in November 2017.  the cost of the entire project will be $2.3 million.  Grants and community donations have totaled over $700,000.  The City offers sincere thanks to the many community contributors for their significant donations to this project.  Along with the grant dollars secured by Parks and Recreation staff, this successful public-private funding model made this project feasible. 

The project will install synthetic turf in the outfield of the north field and replace the existing 30-year-old lights and wood poles with a much more efficient LED light system on new steel poles.  The LED lighting greatly minimizes light 'spill' and has very low maintenance needs.  Conduit will also be installed for the future completion of the lighting replacement on the south field.  This field will have flexible markings to accommodate a range of sports.  Safety and performance will be enhanced with shock pad underlay and cork infill.
